This is about as good as it gets on a hot Saturday afternoon.

Here are a few useful links regarding your’s truly you might want/need/desire.

More Human Than Human





You’ve stumbled onto the blog of Bryn Pryor, also known to the world at large as Eli Cross.

I’m a producer-director-editor-writer-cameraman still struggling with mainstream success while entering my 23rd year in the adult industry, an arena I’ve been pretty successful in. I’ve also directed real movies, music videos and television shows.

Since exiting (well, being invited to exit, actually) an 8 1/2 relationship over two years ago, I’ve come to realize that being an aging perverati carries with it certain compromises. One is that I doubt I will ever be in another serious relationship. Maybe it’s just my midlife crisis, but I’m emotionally prepared to die alone.

I’m incredibly immature in some ways, and very much an adult in others. I still get together to play RPGs with friends, and have an office full of toys and action figures.

I am geekier than you. Hardcore. An Ur-Geek, but I can dress to pass.

I don’t believe in monogamy, and am an unapologetic pervert.

I still use capital letters in e-mail.

I cry a lot at movies, but mostly ’cause they suck.

I have three cats.

I have no interest in sports.

I have an infinite attention span. No, seriously, like thousand-yard-stare attention span.

If you’re short on time or attention span yourself, here are the Cliffs notes. I am, in turns, fiercely intelligent, cynical, cutting, dark, bitter, and funny… outgoing, hopeful, artistic, supportive and kind… entertaining, literate, educated, pedantic, charming and egregiously offensive.

I’m… complex. Dirty. Fearless.

I’m still making dirty movies to pay the bills; dirty movies that look and feel like real movies for a fraction of the cost. In the interim, I’m putting together a steampunk short called Cowboys & Engines I hope to shoot before the end of 2012.

I spend the rest of my time being 75% of someone else’s career. Essentially, I’m a ghost director.

I occasionally forget that my life is kind of amazing. Sometimes it’s just too salty to savor.

Will: Sharon, the NEA is a loser. Yeah, it accounts for a penny out of our paycheck, but he gets to hit you with it any time he wants. It doesn’t cost money, it costs votes; it costs airtime, column inches. You know why people don’t like liberals? Because they lose. If liberals are so fucking smart, how come they lose so goddamn always?
Sharon: Hey!
Will: [to Lewis] And with a straight face, you’re gonna tell students that America’s so star-spangled awesome, that we’re the only ones in the world who have freedom? Canada has freedom, Japan has freedom, the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, Belgium has freedom. [laughs] So 207 sovereign states in the world, like a hundred and eighty of them have freedom.
Moderator: Alright–
Will: And yeah, you, sorority girl. Just in case you accidentally wander into a voting booth one day, there’s some things you should know, and one of them is, there’s absolutely no evidence to support the statement that we’re the greatest country in the world. We’re 7th in literacy, 27th in math, 22nd in science, 49th in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, 3rd in median household income, number 4 in labor force, and number 4 in exports. We lead the world in only 3 categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending, where we spend more than the next 26 countries combined. 25 of whom are allies. Now, none of this is the fault of a 20 year old college student. But you, nonetheless, are without a doubt a member of the worst period generation period ever period. So when you ask, “what makes us the greatest country in the world?” I don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about. Yosemite? [Pause] We sure used to be. We stood up for what was right. We fought for moral reasons. We passed laws, struck down laws for moral reasons. We waged wars on poverty, not poor people. We sacrificed, we cared about our neighbors. We put our money where our mouths were. And we never beat our chest. We built great big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured diseases, and we cultivated the world’s greatest artists and the world’s greatest economy. We reached for the stars, acted like men. We aspired to intelligence, we didn’t belittle it, it didn’t make us feel inferior. We didn’t identify ourselves by who we voted for in our last election. And we didn’t… we didn’t scare so easy. We were able to be all these things, and to do all these things, because we were informed. By great men, men who were revered. First step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one. America is not the greatest country in the world anymore. [Pause] Enough?
